    ncurses is basically used to create text-based user interfaces. There's a guide of sorts at:
    ed! - Ncurses Library Tutorial for Beginners - 1

    I would suggest checking out the Wikipedia article and Google.

    Well, ncurses only draws the screen for you.
    You need another Header for Threading.
    Maybe you should read Threading (multi threading) in Linux - C that.
